AG: Govt will do what’s best

Social Share

GOVERNMENT WILL DO what it deems to be in the best interest of the country and no threat of court action will divert it.

This was made clear yesterday by Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite regarding Government’s stated intention to introduce fingerprinting of all people entering or leaving the country.

“The Opposition is free to take Government to court any time they figure they have a case,” Brathwaite told the media when asked to comment on an announcement that the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) attorneys would contest the plan’s constitutionality in the Supreme Court.

“Government’s policy is not shaped by whether or not the Opposition, David Comissiong or anyone wants to take [it] to court. We have to decide what is best for the Government,” he added.

When asked if the BLP would have a legitimate case, Brathwaite declined to answer. (LK)
